Album Review

Jennifer Holliday shot from obscurity to stardom in 1981 when she originated the role of Effi in the Broadway musical Dreamgirls and introduced the song "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going." Holliday quickly earned a reputation as one of the finest vocalists of her generation, but after focusing her talents on gospel music in 1995 with the album On & On, she retired from the recording studio. With 2014's The Song Is You, Holliday makes her long-awaited return to pop music, lending her rich voice and passionate vocal style to a romantic set of standards and R&B classics. The Song Is You includes the selections "At Last," "Nobody Does It Better," "The Look of Love," "Love Me by Name," and many more.

Holliday is roaring back!!

My partner and I just saw Jennifer Holliday at 54 Below in NYC and she played many of her songs from this compilation...and more. Her instrument is so so so powerful and she pays nice respect to those that have inspired her while inspiring her audience. Thank you Jennifer, welcome were missed but surely not forgotten. Buy this albums and go find her playingin a venue near you in 2014....she should be on everyone's bucket list of artists to see live at least once in their lifetime. Enjoy!
